I call the decision awarding 55 tree planters over $600,000 bizarre not because it is wrong (for a change) but because they value the "dignity and self-respect" of black African workers so much less than a single white wannabe doctor. In the case of Balikama obo others v. Khaira Enterprises and others, 2014 BCHRT 107 there were real, substantial and ongoing human rights … [Read more...]
B.C. Human Rights Tribunal Utterly Disconnected From Reality… Again.
In an astounding display of the bureaucratic disconnect from reality B.C. Human Rights Tribunal member Enid Marion awarded $475,000 in damages, including a whopping $75,000 specifically for "injury to dignity, feelings and self-respect", to University of British Columbia (UBC) medical student Carl Kelly.

Thought Police Compare Publisher with Child Pornographers and Sexual Predators
The Arthur Topham criminal “hate speech” case here in British Columbia continues to leave me scratching my head in amazement that we actually pay Crown Prosecutors good money to act like such idiots. I’m specifically talking about Quesnel Crown Counsel and (president of Quesnel Bar Association) Jennifer Caroline Johnston’s antics in court. Johnston, Arthur Topham relates in … [Read more...]
